Derrick Tennant Biography

Derrick Michael Tennant made the most of a tragedy in his life by creating an opportunity for a career. As a promising athlete, Tennant was progressing in his dream for a career in sports when one evening he laid down but did not wake up for three days.

Paralyzed and in a coma, Tennant underwent brain surgery from which he became unable to move his left side. It would take years of therapy to re-learn the basics like walking, talking and simple daily tasks. Tennant is still unable to use his left arm and he walks with a limp, but he has learned a lot through this process.

Tennant credits one thing for his ability to make it through this process not only alive, but also learning and growing: Love. Receiving love from his family, his friends, and his God combined with learning to better demonstrate love in the midst of difficulty were essential to his survival and vitality. After brain surgery, years of rehab and life in a wheelchair he ultimately got on his feet again. Despite the very limited use of his left side, Tennant loves life and “looks on the RIGHT side” of things. He communicates the importance of shifting obstacles in life, work, or business into opportunities.

He worked hard to overcome physical challenges and now works just as hard to help others overcome trials through his comedy, magic, and inspirational speaking. Tennant formed BLEEPFREE Comedy where you can catch respectably clean shows in clubs across the country. He also landed a role in the Jeff Foxworthy movie “Crackerjack”. He plays a one armed softball player named Lefty.

When it comes to Corporate entertainment it’s important to find an act than can both makes you laugh, and effectively communicates a powerful message. Having overcome a lot in his life, Tennant is just that act. Bringing his message of turning “Obstacles Into Opportunities”. Tennant inspires, motivates and energizes his audience and keeps them smiling all along.
